Girl Develop It Pittsburgh Message Board › GDIPGH: Spring Social, Mentoring program, and more!
Hi Everyone! Below are some exciting recent updates for Girl Develop It Pittsburgh.
We have a Spring Social coming up on Thursday, May 30th 7-9:30pm. This will be a great time to meet other members, chat with the organizers, and have fun networking! Many thanks to Alphalab for hosting this event and helping out with snacks. Please RSVP if you plan on going, so we can plan for an accurate number of people.
We will be doing lightning talks at the social! A lightning talk is a short presentation - in this case five minutes long. This is a great chance for you to try speaking in front of a friendly group of supportive people and to learn from our other members. We'd love to have you talk to us about something you're passionate about! You can sign up at the link below.
Many of you have been asking about getting help between classes or offering to help out others in the group. We're starting a lightweight mentoring program to help out with this, and we need your help to get it up and running!
If you are interested in helping others, please fill out our mentor form. If you are interested in receiving help, please fill out our mentee form. Once we get people with interests that suit each other, we'll match you up and introduce you, so you can get started working with one another. :)
We would like to get more people involved in GDI Pittsburgh, so that we can continue to expand and offer more classes and events. The only way we can do that is with your help.
If you are interested in helping out as a teacher or a teaching assistant, please fill out our teaching application. If you are interested in volunteering in other ways, please fill out our volunteer application. We like to meet people before we have them teach or volunteer, so it's also a good idea to come out to a Code & Coffee or Social and introduce yourself.
We are very excited that we can now provide scholarships for our classes. Many thanks to our current scholarship sponsors: carney+co, Wijmo, and Derrick Brashear. If you are interested in helping sponsor Girl Develop It Pittsburgh, please contact us at email@example.com.
